'Re-invent – Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue'

Designer: Tanya Rousseau

Landscaped and constructed by: Taans Tuine & Kruie

The name of the garden came from my mother and is inspired by the old wedding rhyme.

Most of the elements used in the garden are recyclable i.e. the bottles, sleeper off-cuts, tree stumps, old wheelbarrows and very simple cinder blocks.

The garden shows that you can create a wonderful space using what is available if you just look around and use a bit of imagination.

We borrowed some things from last year’s gardens; we looked for old things and found frames and a door. We searched for blue bottles, but found none, however by thinking “out of the box” we came up with an alternative.

The garden is inspired by the playful joy of being a child. It is a place to play and relax, as well as, a functional space with veggies and herbs for Mum to use in the kitchen.

'The French Door'

Designer: Arne Minnaar

Landscaped and constructed by: Garden Gate Landscaping


I wish I had one, a French Door. I can walk through it when I need to escape to the simplistic functionality and romance of a French country garden.

Pretty in Pink!Pretty in Pink!Pretty in Pink!

Great use of dependable, colourful and drought tolerant plantsGreat use of dependable, colourful and drought tolerant plantsGreat use of dependable, colourful and drought tolerant plants


The timeless doorway and path are framed by Bougainvillea towers with their under-plantings of dependable, colourful and drought tolerant plants. In contrast to this is the flowering vegetable garden, a gardener’s garden, where the plants are the true heroes.

This garden has lush plantings that belie the minimal care required in this low maintenance and water-wise garden. Straight lined beds form a good basis for the unpredictable shapes of plants.

Year round interest is created with the three main textures viz; the architectural succulents, flowing lines of the grasses and the flowering perennials.
